What forms to use when reporting receiving cash in trade or business in excess of $10,000?

If you look at 26 CFR § 1.6050I-1 – Returns relating to cash in excess of $10,000 received in a trade or business, you will see that any person (as defined in section 7701(a)(1)) who, in the course of a trade or business in which such person is engaged, receives cash in excess of $10,000 in 1 transaction (or 2 or more related transactions) shall, except as otherwise provided, make a return of information with respect to the receipt of cash. No matter who is the holder of the account that is receiving the cash. This section of the code clearly states that…”Cash in excess of $10,000 received by a person for the account of another must be reported under this section. Thus, for example, a person who collects delinquent accounts receivable for an automobile dealer must report with respect to the receipt of cash in excess of $10,000 from the collection of a particular account even though the proceeds of the collection are credited to the account of the automobile dealer (i.e., where the rights to the proceeds from the account are retained by the automobile dealer and the collection is made on a fee-for-service basis)”. This is specifically cited from the code and no words were changed.
